Gratitude Research Featured

We've heard a lot about in recent years about the practise of gratitude.

Isn’t it great when scientific research lines up with the wisdom of the Bible? Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about such things” (Philippians 4:6-8)

Lots of research studies have been done to test the effects of a thankful attitude. The results show the huge benefits of being a grateful person.

Here's some of the research here: 

Compared to other people grateful people are:

Happier. Being thankful lowers depression and self-blame and increases optimism, energy, self-acceptance, and life satisfaction. It seems that the positive emotions associated with gratitude undo the painful and debilitating effects of negative emotions.

Less Stressed. Grateful people have lower levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) in their bodies. They have better coping mechanisms to deal with personal difficulties and life transitions: they are quicker to seek help and less likely to avoid or deny their problems or to use drugs.

More Social. Being grateful is associated with increased social connections and leads to greater satisfaction in your relationships.

More Purposeful. Thankful people are more focused on their priorities and they are more mature in their personal growth.

Sleep Better. Grateful people think positive things before going to sleep and it greatly improves their sleep. They spend less time in bed unable to sleep and are more refreshed when they awake.

Fewer Health Complaints. People who are more thankful have fewer symptoms of physical illness. Their bodies have increased resistance to viral infections.

Increased Financial Well-Being. Grateful people are less likely to be greedy or envious. At the same time they are likely to have more wealth.

More Altruistic. Being thankful helps people to be more generous with others, giving of their time and money to help others. Surely, this is the most important finding of all! We are blessed by God to be a blessing to others! Being happier, more energetic, less stressed, and so forth helps us to be more effective in loving God and our neighbour.
